Well, now we really know what is lurking behind that candelabra.

As a scientist in Ant-Man, Michael Douglas' character shrinks atoms and Paul Rudd, but in the bedroom there is nothing small about him.

According to Page Six, while at the after party for Monday's screening of Ant-Man, the 70-year old actor was asked by Vanity Fair about what famous feature has kept him in business for so long.

"Your father had his cleft chin. Omar Sharif had the gap in his teeth . . ." Vanity Fair's George Wayne asked, to which a smiling Douglas responded, "I have a big dick." Talk about ants in the pants!

We will take the Oscar winner for his word on that one.

This isn't the first time Douglas has talked candidly about his sex life. After staving off a scary battle with throat cancer, Douglas candidly revealed in 2013 that his cancer was caused by HPV [human papillomavirus] from performing oral sex.

"I did worry if the stress caused by my son's incarceration didn't help trigger it," he told The Guardian. "But yeah, it's a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancer. And if you have it, cunnilingus is also the best cure for it."

His rep however quickly downplayed that Douglas said his cancer was caused by oral sex, telling E! News, "He did not say this was the cause of his cancer. In a discussion of oral cancer, he said this is one of the suspected causes. He never made it personal."
